Clinical Sciences at Monash Health


"It is a privilege for me to lead this School, in which so many of our students have some of the most formative experiences of their lives. Those first encounters with patients, with disease, with humanity at its most vulnerable - these are things we never forget. We pride ourselves on a culture of inclusiveness, diversity and support, but also on a tradition of great research and clinical excellence. To be able to help all our alumni in the career is an honour, and to observe the achievements of our award-winners is a very rewarding part of it. My very sincere congratulations to the awardees - and I hope to be your colleague in the very near future."

Professor Eric Morand
Head of School of Clinical Sciences at Monash Health
